Possibly yhe best hostel in Europe! If you are going to Sofia you have to stay here! The free breakfast and dinner are amazing! The beds are really comfortable and the staff are so friendly! Its a great place if you are travelling on your own as it has a really nice common area and there are loads of opportunities to meet people.

the hostel is very cheap, clean and the staff is too kind and helpful! If you come to Sofia you must stay here!!


Fantastic hostel- friendly helpful staff, lovely building, good food and great location.


Though my train was stuck from Bucharest on the way to Sofia for 3 hours, the staff was kind enofh to show me to the room. The time was after 2 a.m. Since I had to leave early in the morning, I couldn't enjoy their dinner and breakfast. But I could feel their kind attitude to the travelers.


Staff super friendly. Generous breakfast. Pretty hostel. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Sofia.


All good but no aircon so very hot in the room


It is the best hostel.


Really comfy beds, nice communal area and good kitchen.


good hostel to stay ın sofia but they ask additional fee for breakfeast


Staff were amazing they were always so chatty and helpful, nothing was ever a problem so thank you!!


Was a cool and chill hostel to stay at. It's within walking distance of all the main attractions. The best part about the hostel is the free breakfast and dinner that you get! Its not 5-star but its pretty decent quality food. The hostel has a pretty cool common room to chill and meet people. I'll be staying here again when I go back!


Super nice staff gives everyone orientation and map on arrival, actually sits with you to answer questions. Dinner is basic, but a chance for socializing. Like the curtains on the bunks, and own electrical outlet. A light in bunk would be perfection. Note that bathroom is not in room just shower. There are extra showers if the one in your room is in use. Breakfast is very good. Don't be put off by the strange entrance, just push the button, come in and stay here.


Great atmosphere, very cheap, staff so helpful, clean, use of lockers. Breakfast was amazing but should have gone on for longer! Free breakfast and food also didn't apply to the big dorm room - perhaps make this clearer. Pub crawl was fun but guy wasn't very enthusiastic. Would have been nice to go to more "Bulgarian" places rather than an American bar followed by an Irish bar. Wanted to stay another night and staff wouldn't let me book on again until the morning which was really annoying.


Absolutely fantastic place! Only stayed for one night but wish it could have been more. The staff were fantastic and the people in the hostel are nice as well. I would definitely recommend there pub crawl as well. One bad thing was that it got super hot during the night.


This hostel has his own magic! You feel like your home there! The staff is excellent and gives its best! I think they must putt mirrors to the sinks into all the wc.


Very nice staff!! The breakfast and the dinner were really tasty! And all vegetarian. ThThe room was unfortunately very hot, but other than that very comfortable. Due to the big hang out area it was easy to get to know people.

great hostel. staff were really friendly and helpful! the free dinner and breakfast is worthit too.had amazing variety. really enjoyed my time at this hostel.


Breakfast and dinner included sold it for us!


Atmosphere and location can`t be beaten. The only real negative was that my room was way too hot at night with no air conditioning, making it hard to sleep.


If you're going to Sofia you have to stay at Hostel Mostel. It had a great arty lounge area with a very nice atmosphere, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful! I can't really speak for the 20 bed dorms because we were lucky enough to be bumped up to a great 4 bed room (which was basically an apartment) for the same price. So yeah, I definitely recommend it!
